Weight Watcher Wednesday
I gained a stinking 1/2 pound last week. But, I'm not surprised. I didn't exercise the three days before I weighed in, and I ate like a little piglet that previous weekend and I cheated. So sue me! However, I'm still below the original goal I'd set, so that's good.

Also, I had to change my weigh-in day because the hubby's schedule changed. He used to be off on Saturday's and Sunday's, and Saturday was my day. But I've now switched to Wednesday's so I'll be going this evening. Wish me luck that I've lost my goal of 2 pounds..hopefully more. I've been doing really good since last Wednesday. I haven't cheated, I've exercised four days, plus I'll be exercising tomorrow before I go as well. So here's to weight loss!

Smooches, Lyric

Extra! Extra!

Weight Loss This Week - 3 lbs

Total Weight Loss - 14 1/2 lbs.

W.I.P. Tuesday
My new story is rolling along. It's tentatively titled Thoroughly Tempted. Here's the blurb...

Wesley Duncan's cousin sends him on a forced vacation, a week at Tempted, the perfect place for him to recover from a gun shot wound he received on the job. But recovery becomes the last thing on his mind with a woman like Sierra around.

Sierra Morgan is looking forward to having Tempted, the Florida resort and spa she owns with her best friend, all to herself for a week. So, when a sexy stranger shows up, Sierra is in serious danger of becoming thoroughly tempted.

I'm currently on page 25 (single spaced) of this wip and it's coming along well. I have no targeted word count....I'm just letting the writing take me where it wants me to go. I have several (depending on how long it ends up) e-pubs I'm considering sending it to, so we'll see.

Happy Tuesday

Mystery Monday
My cozy author feature this week is Kate Collins. She's the author of four cozy mystery's called "The Flower Shop Mystery's."

The Flower Shop Mystery's are about Abby Knight, a defunct law student who bought a flower shop. The first book in the series is called "Mum's The Word."

So maybe Abby's life isn't the bed of roses she was hoping it would be. She adores her job, but a new low-cost competitor is killing her profits - and a black SUV just rammed her vintage Corvette in a hit-and-run. Determined to track down the driver, she accepts the help of hunky ex-cop Marco Salvare. But their budding relationship is threatened when the trail turns deadly. Now Abby is caught in a tangle of menacing phone calls, police corruption, and murderous road rage. If she's not careful, the next flower arrangement might be for her own funeral.

The second book in the series is called "Slay It With Flowers", the third, "Dearly Depotted" (which I'm reading now and loving it), and the fourth, "Snipped In The Bud" (the one I read first).

Someone orders a black rose for Abby's old law school nemesis, Professor "Snapdragon" Puffer. But her plans for a speedy delivery are foiled when he catches her putting the bloom on his desk and sends it straight into the trash. Abby flees in terror, only to run smack into Carson Reed, the professor who recently had her arrested at an animal rights protest. After a biting exchange, Abby storms out of the building. But if there's anything she can't stand, it's injustice and bullies. So, even though she knows bad luck comes in threes, she ignores the advice of her sometimes boyfriend, hunk-a-licious Marco Salvare, and heads back in to retrieve her dignity and her flower - only to find the rose now decorating a dead professor, and herself the prime suspect.

I have absolutely loved this series even though I read them all out of order. Ms. Collins has a new book in the series coming out in March called "Acts of Violets." You can visit her on the web here.

Now, go out and buy some books!

Did I Stick To My Goals?
Ha! Fat chance. I don't know what's wrong with me. The two stories I told you about last week started off pretty strong...I was keeping to my word count and then by Thursday, I fizzled out. Didn't write anything Friday. However, inspiration struck on Saturday and I wrote over 20 pages this past weekend...on a totally different story. How crazy is that?

Still, it did feel good to put words on paper. It is an awesome feeling. So, I plan to continue with this story and hopefully complete it soon and start another. The other two might just sit on the back burner for now unless another magic jolt of inspirations kicks in.

I hope you have a great week!

Weight Watcher Wednesday
Yes...I'm losing weight. And yes, I joined Weight Watchers. Actually, I joined over a month ago and I've already lost 12 pounds. I've been a member before...well...twice and lost weight, but I never stuck to it. I could never get past three months. I'd be going strong, exercising, eating healthy, drinking lots of water, and then WHAM! I would get sick and tired of not eating what I wanted to eat and down hill I would go and up up up on the scales. But now, I have no more excuses. The "I'm going to have another baby anyway so...." does not work any more since I had my baby...eight months ago. LOL

Also, the hubby and I are going to Jamaica this June and I refuse to put all this booty in a bathing suit and be embarrased about it. And add to that, I am now the heaviest I have ever been in my life and I be this weight for the rest of it. So, I'm on it. My goal is 8-12 pounds of loss a month. I met it in December and I'm hoping to do the same in January. I attend meetings every Tuesday evening so on Wednesday's I'll keep you updated on my weekly weight loss progress.

If you care to join me in my weight loss mission, feel free to post how you're doing, post a great recipe, or send me and others an encouraging word.

Just so you know, I WILL NOT share before and after pictures until it's over. LOL But let's just say, I have a long way to go.

W.I.P. Tuesday
Today is my last day of Xmas vacation. Tomorrow, it's back to school and dealing with the emotional ups and downs and attitudes of teenagers. Sounds fun, huh? LOL

Well, in case you haven't figured it out, Tuesday's will be dedicated to my work(s) in progress. I'm going to keep you updated on my progress, word count, and share little excerpts of my stories. I'm currently working on two WIPs at this time. One of them is the second in my Private Jane series which I've tentatively titled Under His Cover, which tells Jade's story who you briefly met in Vindication. Here's my blurb....

P.I. Jade Conner is going under cover to protect Lt. Governor Jared Carrington whose been receiving death threats. It doesn't matter to her one way or the other that he's single, sexy, rich, and the most eligible bachelor in Tennessee. She refuses to let it interfere with the job she's been hired to do. Jared can't help but be taken with the lovely Jade, especially since she's trying so hard not to be attracted to him. Jared has a has a hard time convincing Jade that he's not the player the media portrays him to be, especially when all he wants to do is get Jade under his covers.

My plan is for this to be a novella, about 20-25,000 words. And of course, submit it to Cobblestone Press. So, wish me luck.

Mystery Monday!
Happy New Year!!!!!

As some of you know, I fell completely in love and over heels with cozy mystery's this year. I don't know exactly what it is, but there's just something about unraveling a unique and twisting puzzle and figuring out who-done-it that appeals to me, but it does. So, I've decided to dedicate Monday's to "Cozy Mystery's."

The first book(s) I'll share with you are the Wine Lover's Mystery's by Michele Scott. I was first introduced to this author through a Romance Diva's workshop this past summer. The first book in the series is Murder Uncorked and it introduces amateur sleuth, Nikki Sands. Here's the back cover blurb

Nikki Sands was like every other aspiring actress - waiting tables between jobs. But Nikki had taken serving wines to heart. She knew enough to impress Napa Valley's golden boy, Derek Malveaux, who offered her a job at his vineyard. And though Nikki may have left her dreams of stardom behind, the world of wine is ripe with intrigue - and the seeds of sleuthing are planted...

Nikki has just set foot on Napa Valley's rich soil when she realizes her new job may not be as safe as she thought. First off, Derek Malveaux is disconcertingly sexy. Second, his top winemaker is dead in the bushes outside Nikki's cottage. It doesn't take a connoisseur of foul play to know something's taken a terrible turn....

Doesn't that sound like a fabulous read? And believe me, it is. I could barely put this book down when I read it this summer. It's full of recipes and wine pairings, stuff I had no clue about, but was interesting to read about. The book itself gives you the romance you're looking for, and the twists and turns I love to figure out who killed the winemaker.

So, if you like a good mystery, check it out. The second book in the series is called Murder by the Glass, and the third in the series, Silenced by Syrah will be out in March. I personally, can't wait to pick it up. You can visit her website here to read more about her and her books.
